My No. 300: Some Of My Favorite Quotes From Day 3 Of The RNC

"Our opponents say, again and again, that drilling will not solve all of America's energy problems -- as if we all didn't know that already. But the fact that drilling won't solve every problem is no excuse to do nothing at all." -- Alaska governor and vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin in speech to the convention.

"I've learned quickly, these past few days, that if you're not a member in good standing of the Washington elite, then some in the media consider a candidate unqualified for that reason alone. But here's a little news flash for all those reporters and commentators: I'm not going to Washington to seek their good opinion - I'm going to Washington to serve the people of this country." -- Excerpt from Palin's speech.

"There is much to like and admire about our opponent. But listening to him speak, it's easy to forget that this is a man who has authored two memoirs but not a single major law or reform - not even in the state Senate," -- Palin's speech.

"But when the cloud of rhetoric has passed, when the roar of the crowd fades away, when the stadium lights go out, and those Styrofoam Greek columns are hauled back to some studio lot, what exactly is our opponent's plan? What does he actually seek to accomplish, after he's done turning back the waters and healing the planet? The answer is to make government bigger, take more of your money, give you more orders from Washington and to reduce the strength of America in a dangerous world. America needs more energy, our opponent is against producing it." -- Palin's speech.

"This is not a personal attack. It's a statement of fact - Barack Obama has never led anything." -- Former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, in a speech to the convention.

"He is the least experienced candidate for president of the United States in at least the last 100 years." -- Giuliani's speech

"I'm sorry that Barack Obama feels that her home town isn't cosmopolitan enough. I'm sorry Barack that it isn't flashy enough. Maybe they cling to religion there." -- Giuliani's speech.

“I hope for his sake, Joe Biden got that VP thing in writing,” -- Giuliani's speech

“John has been tested. Barack Obama has not. Tough times require strong leadership, and this is no time for on the job training.” -- Giuliani's speech

“"In the Illinois Senate, he voted ‘present’ nearly 130 times. He couldn’t figure out whether to vote yes or no. It was too tough, I didn’t know about this vote ‘present’ when I was mayor of New York City. Sarah Palin didn’t have this vote ‘present’ when she was mayor or governor. It doesn’t work in an executive job. The president of the United States is not good enough to be ‘present.’ You have to make big decisions.” -- Giuliani's speech

“His rise is remarkable in its own right — it’s the kind of thing that could happen only in America, but he’s never run a city, he’s never run a state, he’s never run a business, he’s never run a military unit. He’s never had to lead people in crisis." -- Giuliani's speech

“I am so tired of hearing about her lack of experience, I want to tell you folks something. She got more votes running for mayor of Wasilla, Alaska, than Joe Biden got running for president of the United States.” -- Mike Huckabee

“John McCain doesn’t want the kind of change that allows the government to reach deeper into your paycheck and pick your doctor, your child’s school or even the kind of car you drive or how much you inflate the tires." -- Mike Huckabee

“He doesn’t want to change the very definition of marriage from what it has always meant throughout recorded human history. It is not above John McCain’s pay grade to grasp the simple fact that human life begins at conception, and he is committed to protecting it." -- Mike Huckabee

Great stuff Mike. I'm stealing your idea.

Last week I wanted to curse watching the DNC. This week I wanted to cheer. Maybe, just maybe the Republicans will return to their conservative roots.
